The difficulties of civilian disarmament have long presented a major obstacle to security development in post-conflict countries. The weapons for development’ strategy recently devised for civilian disarmament is based on the exchange of development aid (often aimed at improving the local security sector) for voluntary, community-wide forfeiture of small arms. This paper will examine the effectiveness of the weapons for development initiative in improving security and in providing a sufficient impetus for widespread civilian disarmament.
